Awesome comeback James! Becker saved 15-40 to go up 3-1 and I thought that was the end it for James. I took a shower and came back to see James up 2-0 in the third. Great win James! The final is in your hands now. Just watch out for the Toad.

Yeah, beating Fed in the final is like mission impossible but I hope that tired and crestfallen Fed won't reach final this time

I think he struggles with the low and sometimes uneven bouncing balls. Otherwise he has underachieved on grass as like you said he has the game to do well.

That, plus his movement on grass is suspect at best.
